CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Sheila Kelly Palandjian Head Coach for Harvard Women's Tennis Traci Green will be participating in the final episode of the "Invisible Women in Sport" podcast series on Friday, Oct. 19. The University of Central Florida (UCF) hosts the forum, sponsored by the Institute for Sport and Social Justice (ISSJ) and funded in part by the UCF Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI).
Green is headlining the 14th episode of the series alongside her mother, Tina-Sloan Green, the Co-Founder and President of the Black Women in Sports Foundation. The pair will be joined by America East Commissioner Amy Huchthausen, Northern Iowa Senior Associate Athletic Director Christina Roybal, CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams, and Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak from the 1999 U.S. women's soccer national team.
Originally a panel discussion for UCF's Diversity Week, the "Invisible Women in Sport" series is aimed at celebrating the accomplishments and encouraging opportunities for women of color in sports. It was so successful that the Institute for Sport and Social Justice decided to create a podcast with the same title and focus.
Green, who is in her 12th season leading the Crimson, is the program's second winningest head coach with 123 wins and a pair of Ivy titles in 2009 and 2017.
When: Friday Oct. 19 – 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
